Stunning Marble Surfaces, Coming Right Up!
Sure, marble is a stone. It’s beautiful and durable. There are all sorts of examples of marble buildings and statues that have stood the test of time for hundreds of years… But did you ever notice that some of those statues are missing noses? Ok, that’s an extreme example, but it does demonstrate the point — no natural stone is invulnerable. Marble, polished or not, can become dull, scratched, etched, chipped, cracked or otherwise damaged… and it doesn’t take hundreds of years to happen.
But here’s the good news: marble (and other natural stone) can be restored, rather than having to be replaced. At SPARKLE Surface Care we know what it takes to make your marble surfaces look sensational again. In fact, it’s our area of expertise. We can repair, refinish, restore and more.
Is your marble floor too dull or too shiny? Some areas more glossy than others? Or maybe you just want a change of pace? We can restore the polished or matte finish you love, even-out an inconsistent finish, or change the finish from polished to honed (matte or satin) or vice versa. Whatever your issue, or your preference, we can deliver a beautifully restored or changed marble finish.
Marble Honing & Polishing
An uneven finish, dull spots, scratches or etch marks (sometimes mistaken for water marks or spots) can diminish the elegant appearance of your marble floors and surfaces. SPARKLE Surface Care can hone your marble surfaces to eliminate these imperfections, resulting in a new marble surface free of damage. We can then polish your marble using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to restore the finish you want, whether matte, semi-gloss or gloss finish. With our marble honing and polishing services, our expert technicians can achieve the exact finish you are looking for.
Lippage Removal / Grinding
Uneven tiles don’t just diminish the look of your floors, they can also create a trip hazard. SPARKLE Surface Care can grind away the excess stone (a process called lippage removal) to create a flat, level surface using state-of-the art diamond grinding technology. This can also be done to bring all tiles more level with grout lines to facilitate easier cleaning.
Marble Stain Removal
No matter how careful you are, spills can still manage to happen. And sometimes spills become stains. Whether you are seeking guidance on how to do this yourself or want us to take care of it for you, we are experts in removing stains from marble. Something to note: please do your research before starting any DIY stain removal process, since certain cleaning solutions may damage your stone or even permanently set the stain.
Deep Cleaning of Marble
Are you familiar with the adage, “It’s easier to keep something clean than it is to get it that way?” Your marble surfaces are no exception. Marble is easier to keep clean with periodic professional deep cleaning services, and the proper day-to-day cleaning methods and products. We are happy instruct you in the proper care methods and products that will help keep your marble surfaces looking great. SPARKLE Surface Care also provides regularly scheduled maintenance programs, upon request.
Once your marble floors, showers, tub surrounds, walls, and other marble surfaces are cleaned and restored, we highly recommend you have SPARKLE Surface Care seal them to enhance their stain resistance. While most stains can be removed, marble stain removal can be a time consuming, expensive and often frustrating process. Sealing represents an inexpensive, preventative measure against marble stain damage.
Do you have chips, holes or cracks in your marble surfaces? Before you replace, consider taking advantage of our expert marble repair services. SPARKLE Surface Care can fill holes and fix marble cracks and chips, blending the repair site with the surrounding area, and honing and polishing it to match the surrounding finish.
Marble Tile Replacement
Although it is rare for a marble tile to be beyond repair, sometimes tile replacement is necessary. SPARKLE Surface Care’s craftsmen can, in many cases, remove your affected tile without damaging neighboring tiles, install the replacement tile, level it with the surrounding area, and then match the finish as closely as possible.
Whatever your marble surface or care need, you can rely on SPARKLE Surface Care to provide expert and knowledgeable service help keep your marble looking its best.
